Arriving In Argentina - North Campus
We arrived in Argentina at 4pm on Friday afternoon after a long 13-hour flight from Auckland. When we arrived, we were welcomed with flowers and cheers from the families. We were all very tired as we had not had much sleep on the flight so we went home to our exchanges houses and went straight to sleep. When we were driving home, we found the city to be really different compared to New Zealand with the highways, the buildings and our general surroundings.
The next day we went to the zoo and saw a lot of different animals but it was pretty similar to New Zealand's animals, we tried empanadas which we all liked a lot. Then after that we went to Paloma's house and met a lot of the girls that go to St. Georges which was nice and we had dinner at their house as well.
On Sunday it was Easter and I went to church with Maggie's family and then went to her grandparents house for lunch. Then we went to Cata's house in the late afternoon for an Easter Egg hunt with the rest of the girls and then went home early to get ready for school the next day. Today we went to school and it was very interesting with every class being in Spanish! Most of the teachers and students can speak English very well though.
